Coconut Watermelon Pineapple Granita

I'm holding on tight onto summer. 
I made this frozen and fruity concoction so that I could pretend fall isn't nipping at our heels.

This one is easy, not so quick but hey, the best things cannot be rushed.
This was a perfect dessert for a hot summer evening.

And when I say easy, I mean EASY.
Put your ingredients in a blender, get it good a combined, pour it into a dish and pop into the freezer.

Freeze it for an hour and scrape. Wash, rinse and repeat four times. 
Ok, don't literally do that, but you get the idea. 

I could just dig in to that dish of watermelon! It is so so good. My boys loved it too, all three of them.

2 cups of cubed fresh pineapple

Coconut Granita:
1 14 oz can of coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon honey

For each one, put the fruit and honey in a food processor, or blender. Pulse until there are no ore large pieces. Pour into a casserole dish or sheet pan and freeze for one hour, the take it out and scrap it with a fork and return to the freezer. Do this four times or more if needed. Serve immediately.

*You can see how quickly the coconut melts in my pictures.

Just imagine the fruity possibilities!
